On Thursday, January 27, 2011, the Sundance Film Festival will expand to nine cities across the country for one special night of film and dialogue. Chicago is one of the lucky cities to have been given the exciting opportunity to screen a film that is having its premiere that very same week at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
THEMUSIC NEVER STOPPED (USA 2010).
Directed by Jim Kohlberg and written by Gwyn Lurie and Gary Marks, the film is based on the story “The Last Hippie” by Oliver Sacks. A father struggles to bond with his estranged son who suffers a brain tumor that prevents him from forming new memories. He learns to embrace his son’s choices and to try to connect with him through the power of music.
Cast: J.K. Simmons, Julia Ormond, Cara Seymour, Lou Taylor Pucci, Mia Maestro.
A special guest from the film (to be announced) will attend for a post-screening discussion on the film.
